Your Honor, these men should receive their maximum punishment.
Their guilt is proved by the evidence and by their evasive attitude.
Just look at them.
Remember, you have sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Now, were you or were you not on the night of June the 13th in Mrs. Throttlebottom's chicken coop?
Certainly not. I was in the house!
What house?
The dog house.
Get out!
Mr. Prosecutor, you have not proved that those men were actually in that chicken coop.
Your evidence is purely circumstantial and insufficient to warrant a conviction.
What's he talking about?
Quiet, he means we're not guilty.
Oh, boy!

Sandra!

No! No!
No! No!
No! No!
No! No!
No! No!

Oh
Guilty until proven innocent
In trial for a crime we won't commit
You're far too blind to see the truth
Why not look beyond the line?
There is much more to me, what makes you ???
Have we no rights?

Come and join us in our stance
Break down the walls, let's separate us all
Join with me
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me what you see, the truest of the free believe me

You see life with a frown, you watch you're just a clown
Your little stories get you nowhere
I scream me and you
But it's not coming true
Someday you'll see, yes you will

Come and join us in our stance
Break down the walls, let's separate us all
Join with me
Take a look into my eyes
Tell me what you see, the truest of the free believe me

Lay with fire
You're a liar
No, you are from a world apart
Then far too soon that you went to my life
Taking advantage of sin
Looking for some sort of easy escape
Looking out from deep within
You followed me through the dimly
I guess that's something I try to forget
You shall not join me further
You haven't seen anything yet
So you're the judge in your race

La-rise

Your fear, your suspicions
??? reminitions
You know I've been through this before
What is it that you fear?
To me it's very clear
It doesn't have to be this way

Oh
